Stayed in an apartment for a few nights. Picked these apartments because of the great location. Its above Centro shopping centre with easy access to beach, Cavill Avenue and several great restaurants below. Didn't need car much at all. Unfortunately the room was just not up to scratch. Dirty towels, bath and toilet. Rooms and furniture very dated. Noise from the street can be heard in the evening (but this didn't bother us). Rooms have great views from balcony and location is fantastic, its just a shame the room didn't live up to the view or the location.

Room Tip: Very central, great views, but poor room

Thank you for taking the time to provide feedback on our property, I have taken your feedback on board. The property has embarked recently on some room refurbishments. High expectations of our contracted cleaners are expected, and the feedback will be followed up. Thank you for the positive feedback on the location. Being above Centro shopping centre and near restaurants centainly draws people to the property.

My husband and I and our three young kids (7, 4 and 2) stayed in the Allunga building on the 6th floor. I was worried about staying here because of the majority of reviews I had read on this website......My experience was fabulous. The apartment we stayed at was clean, modern and very large. The location of the apartments are just awesome. A stone's throw away from everything. The staff were also very friendly. Purchased my theme parks tickets through them and they organised transfers to the airport at the last minute. Highly recommended. Will definitely be staying here again.

This visit we decided to stay right in the middle of Surfers Paradise just to experience it. The Paradise Centre Apartments are the place to stay if you want convenience to shops, supermarkets, entertainment, restaurants, takeaways, beach and much more. These apartments are right above the Centro shopping mall on Cavill Ave and walk straight out onto Cavill. The pools were fantastic and you can look over the beach from the pool area. BBQ's, gym, tennis court. The two bedroom apartment was very comfortable and really spacious - fully airconditioned and had a balcony looking over the pools, beach and Cavill Ave. Staff were friendly but kept out your way unless you needed them. We will definitely be going back here - HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!

ok first of the we stayed for more than 7 nights and overall it was ok.
the kitchen was fine, the lounge and dinning are were very nice the best of the apartment.
the bathroom had stains on the roof, the floor needs to be re-done that also goes with the laundry which is right next to the bathroom.

ur room will only get serviced if your staying there for more than 8nights...

thhe bedroom- well the bed was very uncomfortably, the pillows were flat as anything with stains on the floor. you will need to go out and buy ur own laundry products.
the veiw and the location however are absolutly AMAZING, walked out onto the balcony and looked straight out to the beach and looked down upon cavill ave.

the night life is amazing however you can hear most things that go on at night but u can sleep easy.

the front office we're polite and happy to help out with anything that we needed thumbs up to them there.

the centro surfers paradise is located underneath the hotel which was a bonus as well as the bus tranfers from the apartments to the theme parks and aiport, plus and even bigger bonus was the beach... only a 4min walk from the apartment and you there, as well as the wed and fri markets about a 10min walk...

overall i suggest that the hotel renovates the apartments they need to be improved.
our stay was satisfying and nice...

My wife and I stayed in this Hotel over Xmas period 2010, on short notice and thus obviously paid a premium. After 11 hour drive and being promised 4 star luxury to my surprise when we finally got into the room, (the key didnt work, first warning), I thought I was back in the 60's (and that appeared to be the last time it was cleaned). We asked for a King with a Queen if not possible, and were given a bed a chiuahua would have fallen out of. The pillows were about 20mm thick and the carpet was long, dirty and made me nasally for the whole time. I didnt get one good night sleep. Dont try the alternative and sleep on the lounge, the lounges were like something left out on the kerb on council clean ups, with hard steel bars.

The Hotel position is fantastic, and you need it because the first thing you need to do is go to the local woolworths to get 100 bucks of cleaning products before you can attempt to live in this place. We intended to cook xmas dinner in the unit and it took hours of cleaning before we were game to eat there. Like others we told to keep the A/C on to avoid moisture buildup and the allocated 1 roll of toilet paper every 5 days was akin to being in prison. Yes they have Foxtel, but the most basic of packages, not even TV1. Due to the inclement weather we were forced to spend more time then planned indoors and it was just not pleasant. Like many others have said, dont complain, you are wasting your time. We were allocated a parking space and a car took over it for our whole stay, but we were told to find somewhere else. When my wife complained on leaving the supposed General Manager was introduced to her and he said "We always give the substandard rooms in busy periods and the rooms lack what you were sold and cant do anything about it." The service and the fittings was like booking into a motel that charges hourly rates. Its a pity the positioning is great and credit where its due the pool is fantastic. Kick out management and update the rooms with modern, comfortable and ultimately clean furnishings and you would have a first class establishment. It has potential. If it had been good weather we would have slept on the beach instead, would have been more comfortable. While this review may seem at times humourous believe me it was dissappointing. Wth the Aussie dollar where it is, and QLD trying to get travellors to stay local, serving up expensive crap like this wont do your industry any favours. Lvl 18, Allunga building Dec 2010.

Thank you for taking the time to provide feedback on our property. I am disappointed your expectations were not met. You are correct it is a busy time of the year, however, never should there be a compromise on standards. I have addressed issues regarding cleanliness, with our contracted cleaners, and the resort is always endeavouring to upgrade furniture. As the new General Manager of Paradise Centre Apartments I welcome the constructive feedback and apologise for any disappointment you experienced during your stay.
